  1. Ouch! I love firearms, and I’d opt for a sawed off baseball bat instead of that!

    Recoil would probably not be overwhelming, but awkward. Control – direction of discharge or ‘aim’ – would be less than desired. And one would pray the cartridge didn’t penetrate and spray gas back toward the operator.

    If the bore is as primitive as the exterior appears, the velocity would be minimal.

    In some militaries, a handgun is a badge of office, and not expected to be of much use. That must be the case in some illegal activity organizations as well.
